►SUBSCRIBE for 2 new videos per week: http://bit.ly/MarkWiensSubscribe ►T-shirts and caps available now: https://migrationology.com/store/ Special thank you to Sam, Yemane, and Michael. Today was a little bit of a random day in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, searching for delicious Ethiopian food. I first met up with Sam, and he took me a little outside of town, an area known for their meat. We asked some locals around, and found a local meat restaurant that everyone agreed was the best in the city. Dulet - Dulet is an Ethiopian food of minced up raw organs, sauteed in Ethiopian spiced butter. It’s incredibly delicious. The the man sitting next to me ordered shekla tibs, a pan of sliced meat fried and served in a charcoal clay pan. It was very chewy, but tasty. Total price - 230 ETB ($8.31) including drinks Tej - Tej is traditional Ethiopian honey wine, and after asking, some people told us there was a local Ethiopian bar just down the road. It was quite an Ethiopian cultural experience. Price - 9 ETB ($0.33) per cup El Shaday Restaurant - Finally, we returned to Addis Ababa, in the center of the city, and searched out an Ethiopian food that I had desperately wanted to eat - called Tihlo. It’s a dish from Tigray, very rare to find in Addis Ababa, and even the friends I was eating with, who are all Ethiopian, had never heard of it, or tried it. So it was a first for all of us. Turned out to be incredibly delicious, and now one of my favorite new Ethiopian dishes. Price - 80 ETB ($2.89) Thank you for watching this unique Ethiopian food tour in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia!

Nice one minus the two guys. I could hear one of them actually saying in Amharic he doesn't like asking questions. What kind of journalist doesn't like to ask questions ? There is nothing wrong in asking the lady to explain what's the ingredients are and translate that. My peeps are very friendly and like to show off their culture. I think you should just ask your guides to be translators and hear what the locals have to say.

Tihlo is a traditional dish from part of Ethiopian and Eritrea that served in special occasions such as wedding, Christmas etc,. that's why Tihlo is so rear, but the best food ever. Thank you for sharing your experience, you are amazing Mark.

This guy has a super human stomach. I dont understand how you can go to different cultures and eat such vastly different food and sont seem to ever get sick.

Stabbers? Those are called forks. Also, it´s questionable eating raw meat in third world countries.
Ethiopian FOOD THE BEST 👍

Mark, I just happened upon your videos a short time ago, and watching you enjoying another culinary food adventure never fails to make me salivate as you go wide eye'd into every bite. Outstanding!!

This guy doesn’t even have a tongue, he likes everything he eats. I would pay to see him eat something he doesn’t like or actually gags to.

The guide is only concerned about eating his food (which Mark paid I'm sure) instead of being the proper guide that he was paid to be. Pathetic.

I wonder if the Ethiopian Honey Wine is similar to Mead which is also a fermented honey drink.

Mark you did a great job the guide altho he is a journalist he was bot very informative. I feel like he could have helped you when trying to go in the kitchen but he was so uninterested that he left you to figure things out yourself. It broke my heart because I know you weren't beibg entitled or trying to be disrespectful. Keep up the good work but if you feel the vibe is not right let him go

Mark: 'mead' or 'honey mead' is a better translation of 'tej' into English than a 'honey wine'. Of course, Ethiopia has its traditional beer made by fermenting grains such as barley, sorghum, maize, etc, still done by following a recipe similar to the one used by ancient Egyptians. The Ethiopian traditional beer is called 'tella' in Amharic but there are different types of the same stuff in different regions/cultures of the country. The Amharic/Ethiopian version of wine is known as 'ye woyin tej' [woyin = grapes, hence 'ye woyin tej' = tej made by fermenting grapes]. Because of its higher altitudes & cooler weather, the Ethiopian highlands are suitable to produce grapes, crops/grains & fruit varieties that are common in the Mediterranean world than in tropical Africa. Of course, Ethiopia is kind of a bridge between black Africa & the Mediterranean+Arab worlds. Hence there are lots of things that Ethiopia shares/borrows from the Arab, Mediterranean & India [curry & Asian spices]. Again, another fantastic & enjoyable clip of yours. Thanks.

Most of restaurant's owners are concious about kitchen for its cleanliness and they have a guilt and they wont let you in the kitchen ( Have seen alot of exmaples of such rude irresponsible owners, Sorry to say ) its not disrespectful but i felt it more inusling for mark when he asked him not to go into kitchen. Thats not how you treat a guest ! better keep cleanliness and feel free to invite anyone in kitchen DUH !!!! He managed it tho ! I FELT BAD, We love you mark ! <3

Ethiopia is the best place to eat
*I thought that Ethiopians followed the Jewish Kosher laws like they follow every Jewish law and prohibit from eating raw flesh or flesh that has blood attached to it*
